GTX 590 with E6400 benchmarks at Ultra Quality settings

At 1440p, GTX 590 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is worth noting that the GTX 590 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With current 1536 MB RAM, the GTX 590 can have serious memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. It is important to know that GTX 590 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. This combination between GTX 590 and Intel Core2 Duo E6400 @ 2.13GHz is going to cause serious bottlenecks in many games and cause severe FPS loss. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like GTX 590 requires careful thought.
